Chateau Latour Pauillac 1996

Chateau Latour Pauillac 1996

Sku: 053281

 Wine Advocate 99 points (Jun 2000)
A spectacular Latour, the 1996 may be the modern day clone of the 1966, only riper. This vintage, which is so variable in Pomerol, St.-Emilion, and Graves, was fabulous for the late-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon of the northern Medoc because of splendid weather in late September and early October. An opaque purple color is followed by phenomenally sweet, pure aromas of cassis infused with subtle minerals. This massive offering possesses unreal levels of extract, full body, intensely ripe, but abundant tannin, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. Classic and dense, it displays the potential for 50-75 years of longevity. Although still an infant, it would be educational to taste a bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050.”
 Wine Spectator 97 points (Dec 31 1999)
The Top 100 Wines of 1999 "A classic claret in every sense, Latour combines power and finesse with consistency. No stranger to our Top 100, Latour earned Wine of the Year status in 1993 with its now legendary 1990."
